Default Which sub u runnin’? Help me save $10k

Before I plunk down oodles of money on upgrading I’d like to see what a sub or a pair of subs would do for me maggies.

Any upgrades I’ve explored via different brands keep coming up plus $10k either used or new.

I gotta try subs........

I will not speak to specific brands but offer this advice. Maggies are extremely fast and transparent and so should any sub used with them. Anything less will be an exercise in futility.

I am using an JL Audio subwoofer, with crossover set at 35Hz and volume level at 2 ( D110 ) + Magnepan 0.7. Never had any success with other brands of subwoofers.

Getting a 2nd REL 212SE sub, so now it will match my other.
Really blends seamlessly with the MBL101E speakers!

We like spending others’ monies and would suggest thinking about adding in a crossover (eg, JL Audio CR-1), at some point. It’s transformative.
